I’ve been waiting for Linda Cardinelli’s (Legally Blonde, Scooby-Doo films) career to break into the mainstream since I first saw her on Freak and Geeks. Unlike many of her co-stars from that show (James Franco, Seth Rogan, Jason Segal) Cardinelli has yet to become a household name… Return may be the performance that does it for her.
Return follows Kelli (Cardinelli), who has recently returned back home to her small town after finishing a tour of duty and finding it hard to readjust to her old life. Michael Shannon (Take Shelter, The Runaways) plays her husband and John Slattery (The Adjustment Bureau, Mad Men) plays the role of a fellow war vet who Kelli bonds with.
The trailer is well done and it’s definitely peaking my interest in the film. At the very least we’ll get to see a war film where the focus is on a woman instead of a man.
Return will open in limited theaters on February 10th, before being released via Video On Demand on February 28th.
